Delivery Policy

DELIVERY POLICY

We aim to deliver all Goods and Services as quickly as possible.


Delivery policy for Services

Services become effective as soon they are purchased but will be subject to our usual checks regarding the identity of you the customer and the suitability of the Service purchased for your purposes. We will activate the Service within 8 hours of making payment to us during our standard working days.

In more detail this means:
- if we are supplying an ongoing Service to you/your company then we are required to identify you as under anti-money laundering regulations detailed here. We will set the Service up within a few hours of receiving payment and will email you a request for identity (ID) documents. If ID is not supplied as stated in the email we may temporarily suspend the Service. You will be notified if this happens and the Service can be reactivated upon supply of satisfactory ID documents.
- we need to check you have purchased a Service that is suitable for your purposes. On occasions a customer may purchase a Service that does not satisfy their requirements. If this happens we will contact you to discuss an appropriate Service and upgrade fee or a refund as appropriate.

We like to keep our customers happy and any issues around supplying ID and incorrect Services being purchased can usually be resolved very quickly and amicably when we contact you.

Our Liability for delivery of Service or Goods

The date of delivery specified is an estimate only. Time for delivery shall not be of the essence of the contract and we will not be liable for any loss, costs, damages, charges or expenses caused directly or indirectly by any delay in the delivery of the Goods or performance of Services.

Any delivery guarantees are offered by the selected delivery service and not by us. Claims for failure to meet delivery guarantees must be made against the delivery service and not us.

All risk in the Goods shall pass to the Customer upon delivery.

The supply of Services will be provided by us to the Customer for a specified period but not exceeding 12 months. At the expiration of the agreed period we may at our sole discretion and without notice:
- invite the Customer to renew Services as specified by us and at prices prevailing at the time of renewal.
- elect to terminate the Services supplied to the Customer.
